Creative Learning Events

In 2017 Creative Scotland published the Creative Learning Review, informing this part of our role for the next five years. A key priority was the commitment to ‘develop an annual calendar of events that will enable knowledge, experiences and ideas relating to creative learning to be shared regularly with and between the arts, screen and creative industries sector and other public sectors’.

This programme of events, developed in association with the ArtWorks Scotland Forum for Practice Development. Its aims are to create a coherent programme of networking opportunities for artists working in creative learning and participatory arts. The events aim to inspire practice and support networking and skills development.

Programme for 2018/19

Booking is now open for a series of four professional development sessions focusing on creative learning and participatory arts. Hosted by Creative Scotland in collaboration with Red Bridge Arts, the sessions will take place across Scotland between November 2018 and March 2019.

Who should come?
